Educational Resource Guide
The Educational Resource Guide (ERG) contains descriptions of all the programs available for schools.
Teachers seeking funding for their group may apply for assistance through the Aquarium's Access Aquarium Grant program. This program, which is supported by donations, has limited funds to assist with Aquarium admission for high-needs schools and United Way designated non-profit organizations that work with underserved or special needs groups. Also inquire with the administrative staff at your school about PTA funding and other grant opportunities.
